Lameness Investigation

A large portion of the horses we examine are seen for lameness investigation. Naturally many of these investigations are conducted at your barn, but we now have facility that is superb for these investigations and allows for several surfaces to be used for in depth investigations.


Dr. Batt uses anesthesia (nerve blocking) to localize the site of lameness, and diagnostic imaging using portable digital x-rays and/or digital ultrasound, can be done to complete the process, or aid in the diagnosis.

Treatments such as joint injections with IRAP, ultrasound guided intralesional injections with PRP, shockwave, acupuncture, mesotherapy and chiropractic adjustments are all part of the array of modatities that can be used by our vets for getting your horse sound and back to use.
